Are squirrels causing you headaches?
Squirrels are a pest that can cause extensive damage to the home and should not be ignored.
Squirrels transmit diseases, and they are invasive. Upon entering your home, they will cause extensive damage, especially to the rafters and beams, weakening the structure. Squirrels came into existence in the UK in the late 1800s, and there are about 2 million of them out there. After being considered vermin, wildlife control has been trying to eliminate this species, but they are proving their hardiness by simply multiplying more. So before this happens in your home, make sure to speak to Higher and Lower Broughton Squirrel Trapping so we can best advise you on what is best for Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
These pests will look for any opening around the home's exterior and will use this to enter once they find no available point. Next, they will move to the chimney or roof. They have a terrible habit of gnawing on the valley of your roof, making them weak and susceptible to water seeping through. It is only the beginning because they have incisors that grow throughout their lives. They will need to chew on hard items to file them, and this will include furniture, beams, insulated wires, and rafters. Likewise, it can lead to structural damage in your home or office, and more importantly, it can result in fires when they chew on the electrical wires, so before that happens, it is advisable to speak to Higher and Lower Broughton Squirrel Pest Control.
Interesting points about squirrels
Squirrels will also build nests in garages, in the spaces between the cars and the wall. They like to be near a food source, so they will often build their nests close to where you store your food. In the event that squirrels are a problem for you, you may want to consider moving your food storage somewhere else.
Grey squirrels are typically between 12-18 inches in body length, with a tail that is about the same length. They weigh right around 2 pounds and when they go on all fours, measure 32-35 inches, including their bushy tails and a bit less than 15 inches when they stand up. Grey squirrels have large furry ears and big fluffy fur. The colour is more of an ashy brown or grey on top with creamy white underparts. When it scampers across the grounds, you'll spot its white tail showing before it disappears into some bushes or tree shadows.
There are many sounds squirrels use to communicate with one another, including chirps and screams. They also use scent markings to leave messages for other squirrels. Squirrels are very active creatures and love to play. They will often chase each other and playfully wrestle with one another. Squirrels also enjoy climbing and playing in the trees. In fact, they are so acrobatic that they can hang by their hind legs and turn somersaults.
Squirrels typically eat a variety of foods, such as nuts, seeds, fruits, and insects. Unfortunately, they also like to store food in caches (hidden stores), so they will often bury their food.
